Bossley Park - postponed Prairie Vale Road final connection night works to take place Thursday 10 February 2022

Sydney Water is working to expand our network to meet increased demands from growth in South West Sydney. In Bossley Park, we are installing a valve on Prairie Vale Road to control the pressure of water as it enters homes to ensure our existing and future customers continue to have reliable access to clean drinking water.

Upcoming night work

We have recently completed installation of the valve on Prairie Vale Road between Crow Place and Apache Road. We previously advised you that the final connection for this valve would occur on Friday 21 January 2022. Due to postponements out of our control, this work did not go ahead as planned. We are now ready to complete the final connection.

We will complete the final connection at night on Thursday 10 February 2022 between 8 pm and 6 am, weather permitting.

Water outage

While the connection is completed, some residents will experience water outages for up to eight hours on Thursday 10 February only between 9 pm and 4 am. Sydney Water will notify all affected residents in a separate letter.

Traffic changes

As we complete this work, there will be a temporary closure of the eastbound lane along Prairie Vale Road between Crow Place and Apache Road. All traffic will share the use of the westbound lane on a stop-slow arrangement. The footpath will be closed to pedestrians and traffic controllers will ask pedestrians to stop and wait before crossing the road.

Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to observe all project signage and traffic control directions during construction.

Construction activities

Construction activities will include exposing the existing water main to connect the new valve to the existing main with bolting and welding. There will be trucks and other construction equipment with reversing beepers working in the area. We’ll try to do the noisiest work early in the night, but there will be some noise after midnight at times when we backfill and restore the area.

We will return on Monday 14 February to complete a final restoration of the disturbed area.

Location of work

The health and wellbeing of Sydney Water crews are our top priority. All crews are adhering to testing, social distancing, and mask wearing requirements.

Members of the public can rest easy knowing that Sydney Water's front line crews are authorised to work safely to continue delivering these essential services for their communities.

We know our work can be disruptive, so we’ll make every effort to reduce any impact this work may have on you. Thank you for your cooperation during this essential work.
